Congrats to Esperanza Spalding Best New Artist Grammy Winner

3:22 PM

Most of us naturals are familiar with Esperanza and have enjoyed her music and her gorgeous fro for some time now. However, it seems her name is a bit unknown amongst the younger Bieber type crowds lol! Viewers were stunned when her name was called as the winner, beating out big names like Justin Bieber and Drake in the Best New Artist category. Heck, I didn't even know she was nominated for anything lol!! Since her win, the fans of the other nominees (mainly the Bieber fans) have been voicing their anger via twitter and other outlets, basically saying she doesn't deserve the win. Well kids, sometimes it's more about the music and talent than sales...sorry :)

Congrats Esperanza!!!

Updated: Check out this post I did on Esperanza back in 2009. The video is one of my fav songs of hers!

5 People Obsessing!

  1. I wasn't familiar with who this artist was, but after googling her I can see why she won. This is the Grammys... not the MTV awards so it's nice to see an classically trained artist with pure, raw talent win.

  2. This chica is super talented, and the award is well deserved!

  3. well deserved! Bieber craze will not last, he is a trend, and some trends die.

  4. I think that everyone in that category deserved an award, but people are going to far saying that she doesn't deserve it and bashing her on twitter. I wish that all of them could have got an award:(

    Congratulate her and MOVE ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. I am so glad that Esperanza won! Although an artist doesn't need validation from anyone or any entity including The Grammy's to define her/his worth, it's lovely that someone with genuine talent & dedication to her craft won such an accolade. Rock on Esperanza!
